Yes, you can call Paul Ottinger, Executive Director of Camp Discovery and set up a time to visit the camp when in is not in session or coordinate with the camp director when it is in session.

Q. What if extra care is needed for my child/adult charge, i.e., bathing, changing clothes, eating?
Several of the campers require this type of care and it is not a problem. This info is asked for on the application so they can make sure to have enough counselors that week.
